Sanitation services provision in Africa needs to go beyond technologies and focus more on appropriate financial and institutional arrangements to reach systems' sustainability irrespective of Donors financial supports. Adapt ecosan concept to Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) in West African context is the direct aim of this case study. In Kumasi where FSM issues are institutionally better tackled in West-Africa, the system sustainability is still a problem because of the high Government subsidy. Improved financial and institutional arrangements can be found for an economical and ecological sustainability like would like the holistic approach of ecosan. The case study shows how the FSM system of the city, can be independent from Donors financial support if the potentiality in both households and farmers are brought out.
